salutogenic is a term coined by the medical sociologist Aaron Antonovsky to describe an approach that focuses on factors that support human health and well-being, rather than on factors that cause disease. salutogenic in psychological terms means the study of the psychological resources and processes that enable people to cope with stressors, overcome challenges, and thrive in the face of adversity. salutogenic psychology emphasizes the role of positive emotions, optimism, resilience, self-efficacy, and social support in promoting mental health and preventing mental illness.
